Source(s):  Institute of Resource Governance and Social Change (IRGSC)

IRGSC working paper no 4:

This paper addresses the fiscal gaps in resource experienced by local governments in developing countries to address overall stock of disaster risks and vulnerabilities because there are many other competing priorities. It looks at Indonesia, who developed a new form of risk governance by inviting non-state actors such as civil society and private entities to collaborate in risk reduction. This collaboration emerges as form of disaster risk governance namely public-private partnership under the coordination of civil society.

The paper asks: what drives local firms participate in public-private partnership in reducing risks in Indonesia? The case presented here is based on the empirical work of Public Private Partnership for Disaster Management (P3DM) in West Sumatra, Indonesia. The paper concludes that the nature P3 in West Sumatra is characterized by high degree of informality and flexibility in their partnership.
